Let's compare your equation to that of a general sinusoidal oscillation:
y = A sin ((2*Pi/T) x  φ),
where A is the amplitude, T the period, and φ the phase shift. You have
y = √20 sin ((4*Pi) x + 7e^{1}),
therefore the amplitude is A=√20, the period we get from
2*Pi/T = 4*Pi, which gives us T=1/2,
and the phase shift is φ=7e^{1}.
With this information you should be able to sketch the graph of the oscillation.
